Latency Issues

I am using Ubuntu 9.04 and here is my issue. I will record the first track, go back to the begining to record the second track and i get this message.Latency Correction setting has caused the recorded audio to be hidden before zero.
Audacity has brought it back to start at zero.
You may have to use the Time Shift Tool (<---> or F5) to drag the track to the right place.
I mess with all the tools with no positive results...It will not let me record a second track and that message pops up every time... I am a newbie to audacity so any help would be great...Thanks...

I bet you're not using Audacity 1.2.x
What version are you using?

Do you have a standard Ubuntu install of have you modified the sound system in any way?

Silky64,

In this new page from the 2.0 manual, Latency Test, there is a discussion at the very end "All audio behind zero warning".

I hope this helps.

The only way I can see this happening is if you have accidentally selected a very short section of audio at the start of the first track. When you tell Audacity to record the second track it records only for as long as the current selection. Try clicking the Skip To Start button, then try recording again. If this doesn't work then I'm stumped.

SIlky64,

Hmm....

OK, I was able to reproduce your issue, but not under 1.2. For me, it was under 1.3.9 running in Windows XP SP3, not *nix. I can recreate this problem by going to Edit > Preferences > Recording, and set "Audio to Buffer" latency to 0. Try setting this value much higher.

The default for this setting in Audacity is 100ms.

I hope this helps.

This is a very old thread and you should started a new topic.

Anyway, go to the Transport menu and make sure you don't have Sound Activated Recording enabled. Did that solve your problem?
Include as much details as you can in your post (Audacity version, Operating System, Equipment used, etc).
Please post your question in the appropriate forum (regarding audacity version and operating system).
